Weekly Photo Challenge: TODAY

The photo challenge this week says that I have to take a picture of something – now and today… without cheating! I found out today’s theme while at work so I decided to take pictures on my way home.

I came from a night shift so I thought the sun would be up when I come out of the hospital.

Before I went home, I dropped by the cafeteria and bought some vegetable noodles to bring home for breakfast.

On my way home. Our place is known as the City of Gardens because everywhere there is greeneries.

Taking a shot while on stoplight. The last intersection before my building.

Taking the stairs on my way to my unit on the fourth floor. Exercise.

The views from where I live.

The morning promises that it’s going to be a great day.

And when the world is about to start their day, mine’s ending. Time to sleep now. Have a great morning, everyone!

    Loved your pictures of your route home for the TODAY challenge. You live in a beautiful garden city. Thanks for sharing.

    You managed to snap off some wonderful shots on your way home, Nelson. I hope you got some rest, and got back up in time to enjoy some of that lovely sunshine.

    I went up to Richmond today and took some city shots to post as well, for those that have never visited our city. It’s amazing how similar cities are, yet how different they are at the same time, depending on their location, and the culture of the fine folks living in them.

      Have a great day!

    Your streets are so neat. No litter. Sadly many of our towns look so dirty.

      The local government here is very keen with cleanliness. Garbage is regularly collected, and the streets are sweeped often.
      Thanks for the visit 🙂

    Beautiful city, but hot this time of year, I suppose. We lived in Qatar for a few years, but I would always come home to Canada for the summer – just couldn’t take the heat in the Middle East!

      Very hot indeed! Just a while ago, we went to church, and I could feel the warm air on my face. It was like facing an open oven! Really hot!

    Hope you had a good sleep. I worked at one of the manufacturing companies in Manila before and I hate night shift. especially during Sundays and you can hear all the noises in the surrounding.

      I sleep well during the day too so I don’t really mind doing night shifts. I guess it’s a matter of getting used to. Thanks for the visit, Marianne!

    Interesting challenge. I like the photograph of the stairs.


  22. June 5, 2012 at 11:22 pm

    Sometimes, I also want to challenge myself to take more pictures. My SLR has been sleeping. Lol.

      Oh my, make your SLR work! You’re lucky you have one! I only used my phone’s cam with this, btw.
      Thanks for stopping by, Lizzie!


  23. June 6, 2012 at 6:06 am

    I wish Manila had wide open spaces like that place. I miss the rotundas we used to have instead of stoplights.


    • 48 nelson RN
      June 6, 2012 at 10:41 am

      We still have lots of Rotondas here in Al Ain! But slowly they are changing them to stoplights one by one. They feel that rotondas/round-abouts are much dangerous.
      Thanks for stopping by, Jellybelly!

    Hey! you really got a very nice place. The streets are very clean and the plants and trees are all well maintained. Hope Manila can be something like that too.

    Visiting from BC.

    I’ve always wanted to be part of a photography group that will hold weekly photo challenges like this. It’s just something to look forward to every week. And in addition to that, you get to practice your photography skills. Btw, you’ve got a nice view from your place! 🙂

      Everybody is welcome to join, Carol! I am not a photography enthusiast myself, but I enjoy this weekly photo posting using my celfone and point-and-shoot cams. i don’t have a DLSR. Thanks for stopping by!


  31. June 7, 2012 at 4:53 am

    Beautiful pictures and views but my fave are the streets with pine trees 🙂 I miss seeing pine trees 😦



  32. June 7, 2012 at 6:14 am

    Nice pics! Kelan kaya ako makakapag-abroad? Wala talaga sa Pinas. hay!


  33. June 7, 2012 at 9:36 am

    Nice shots. Are these weekly photo challenge a contest? Just want to know. Thanks


    • 68 nelson RN
      June 7, 2012 at 9:14 pm

      Nope, it’s not a contest. WordPress comes up with a theme every week for bloggers to follow for posting photographs. Even non-photographers join this weekly thing. This is the site where we get inspirations for writing: http://dailypost.wordpress.com/ .
      Thanks for stopping by, Allan!

  36. June 7, 2012 at 5:22 pm

    Great shots you took! Too bad you were not able to enjoy such a great day 😉


  37. June 7, 2012 at 5:53 pm

  38. June 7, 2012 at 8:48 pm

    Nice shot and your place seems to be relaxing..such peaceful


  39. June 8, 2012 at 4:49 am

    Staircase exercise is great…and 4 floors at that. Good for you 🙂 You also have very nice views outside your window.


  40. June 8, 2012 at 8:55 am

    I love places with lots of greenery! There’s a severe lack of that here in the city where I reside.


  41. June 8, 2012 at 10:31 am

    Nice view!
    And you still manage to blog after your shift. You’re one busy Dad!


  42. June 8, 2012 at 6:30 pm

    Nice view there… the surroundings seem so relaxing 🙂


  43. June 8, 2012 at 6:46 pm

    Great pictures! Your place also seems like a wonderful place to live in.


  44. June 8, 2012 at 8:55 pm

    I really like the stairs. Gusto kong gawing wallpaper. Nakaka-lula tignan.


  45. June 9, 2012 at 1:02 am

    Great to view your journey back to your home. It must be fun staying in the city.

      There are pros and cons in staying in the city. I actually prefer living in the province but fate brought me here 🙂 Thanks for the lovely visit, Dominique!


  46. June 12, 2012 at 11:59 am

    Great slice from your day.


  47. June 13, 2012 at 6:52 am

    I miss the Middle East! —>grew up in Jeddah 🙂



  48. June 22, 2012 at 11:10 am

    Bro, what a great way to celebrate the day. And the food…made me so hungry. Best wishes to your family.


  49. July 17, 2012 at 9:16 am

    Is this in Dubai? Such a nice place. I like the top view of the parking lot.


  50. July 21, 2012 at 9:15 am
